Info 2 Screen fixture defects

ASUS TF700T right out of the box with significant screen flex/adhesion/fit problems.
Received from newegg.com on 1 September 2012. ...RMA in-progress...

Pictures of all the edges show some areas of the screen being reasonably flush with the chassis, but it is rather inconsistent.
These may be helpful as a reference to determine the severity of display to chassis interface issues.

Cheers.

This isn't a "lash out thread". A lot of people do a ton of research before buying a device. A lot of that research is done within forum communities.

These pros and cons are specifically for MY device.

Pros:

1. Sturdy and solid physical build (I haven't experienced any cracking or clicking noise when using the device)
2. Very light (even when using a case or protective cover)
3. Beautiful screen (arguably the best display you'll find on any Android tablet on the market)
4. Android OS (ICS and eventually Jelly Bean)
5. Handles high definition video very well (with the exception of the .MKV format)
6. Automatic screen brightness is very responsive (although I noticed that it does better at responding to light than responding to darkness)
7. The rear facing camera is of good quality
8. ASUS quick setting panel is very useful
9. The Tegra 3 processor is very snappy
10. I LOVE the grassy live wallpaper (hahaha)

Cons:

1. The metal on the back of the device is VERY scratch prone
2. There were a few blemishes and nicks on the material between the bezel and the screen (not a major deal but I expected more from ASUS)
3. Minimal light bleed (I can only see it on boot and a small amount on the status bar)
4. There is one STUCK pixel (it is not black so I can only assume it's NOT dead)
5. WiFi reception could be a bit better
6. When sleeping during economy mode, the device will not respond to the power button (I assume that can be fixed in a firmware patch)
7. The speaker is on the back (volume can be boosted with Volume +)
8. Bloatware (there isn't a HUGE amount but some of it is a little irritating. much better than Verizon devices though)
9. The keyboard does not have voice recognition built into it

That is really all I have to comment on for now. In the future, I hope ASUS improves the position of the speaker (front facing speakers) and the material used to make up the back portion of the tablet (maybe some type of glossed material). I try not to obsess how the tablet looks physically but when you're spending a LOT of money on a device, it should meet more than what you expected. I think that they need to step up quality control a tad.

Overall, I'd say I'm pleased with what I purchased. The Android tablet industry is still very young. I expect to see a ton of breakthroughs in the next few years and I'm very excited.

ASUS really should stop hand assembling their products.

Adopt what car manufactures have been practicing for decades now.

*WOW* - the images that you posted are unbelievable!! How in the world did that *ever* make it out of the factory - it's *obviously* defective. Unless this is happening after it leaves the factory, due to the adhesion failing if it gets hot or something (like when sitting in a warehouse or a UPS truck, for example)?

The Nexus 7 seems to suffer from similar adhesion issues - maybe Asus is simply using poor adhesive?? If that's the case, they really need to recall the affected devices and switch adhesives!

There is simply no excuse the for this level of poor QC, especially on a "premium" device such as the TF700...

Wow man that is crap!
If I'd got that I'd be freaking out...sadly this is a danger in the on-line purchase game.

I wonder how these tablets are packaged?
By machine or trained gorillas...

That is out of control! I actually gasped from shock when I scrolled down and saw that picture.

Default One more complaint

Hey Guys,

I bought my TF700 less than a week ago and this evening I got this:



Seems like a row of pixels got stuck. And it shows as soon as the boot screen appears. So obviously no software problem.
Sending it back to amazon right now.

Seems to be the first mention of this problem, so probably a production error. I just find it curious that it happened after five days.
